  • We got wonderful experience. Huge museum of Singapore historical collections, as you expected from a museum. Clean, nicely decorated and beautiful building too. Good for those who love and curious about history; especially Singapore national history. Good for all kind of visitors, with family, couple, friends or alone. But you might expect walking a bit because of the vast building.
  • The high and voluminous halls and ceilings of days gone by give one the serene, floating and lofty feeling walking through. The thick walls ensure a comfortable ambience and temperature, enveloping the interiors from the outside heat and humidity. The cafeteria is a joy to enjoy good food in this splendid environment. Food is not bad too, especially the sweet potato fries, tasty and crisp.
